Karachi: After the term of the mayor of Karachi expires, a plan has been drawn up, requiring a consistent manager to come.
The demarcation will take place before the next local agency election. The Sindh Provincial Assembly will introduce a bill requiring the appointment of a mayor.
PTI leader Khurram Sher Zaman has said that Karachi has given us a big mandate, therefore there is a lot of pressure on the federal government. He said the government is ready to give the PPP one last chance and join hands with the Sindh government. If it still does not work, the strict option will be used.
Earlier on Sunday, a committee was set up under the leadership of Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah to resolve issues across the province, including Karachi.
According to the details, a team of three each from the federal and provincial governments will discuss Karachi’s development strategy.
The spokesperson of the Sindh Provincial Government, Murtaza Wahab, took this opportunity to say that only through the joint efforts of the federal and provincial governments can the province’s problems be resolved.
The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) have joined forces to develop Karachi.
An agreement was reached during a multi-hour meeting of the three stakeholders. Important figures from the Pakistani army also attended the meeting.
Assad Umer, Ali Zaidi, Wasem Akhtar, Sindh Chief Minister Said Murad Ali Shah, Said Ghani and Nasir Shah attended the meeting.
The development was made after the Supreme Court of Pakistan ordered the National Disaster Management Agency to clean up all drainage and open channels in Karachi, remove the violations and submit a report to it within three months.
Judge Gulzar Ahmed, a three-member Supreme Court headed by the Chief Justice of Pakistan, heard a case involving violations of the city’s drainage ditches and open channels at the Karachi Registry on Wednesday.
The court expressed frustration with the Karachi Commissioner’s report on the violation of clearing open channels and drains.
